{Fairy Ring Gothic Arch Book}


















I finished this Gothic Arch book that I had been working on for the past few weeks over the weekend. Lots of springy colors and Paper Whimsy images and alterables throughout it. It’s been awhile since I’ve made one — and it felt good to finally get some art done from beginning to end.

I came across this a few weeks ago on Pinterest and had to share…made me feel better about my artist self! ;) Happy Monday!


About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.
